A few weeks ago I shared this picture of me and my fearless office assistant, Miss Mya.
You can sort of see that "we" are building something, it just so happens to be a Billy bookcase from IKEA. (My first time building this bookcase, "we" handled it with ease.) These two pictures marked the first step in "beautifying" our shared office.
Originally Mr. UC claimed
(was banished to) this office because he only had a desktop computer (I didn't want his "collection" anywhere else in the condo).
He has since acquired a laptop and no longer needs to spend all his time in there, so we decided to share
(I have taken over) the space. However, there is still the issue of the "decor". Mr. UC is a sci-fi buff, aka a Trekkie, and this is a shot of one side of the office when he had single occupancy.
Let's take a closer look at those bookcases. *Clears throat* This is not even all of his collection, I mean decor.
This is where the Billy bookcases enter and have made a huge difference already. Well, that combined with condensing his collection.
Let's zoom out a bit on this side of the room. The content of the shelves are in the midst of being organized, but oh what a vast improvement already!
Now let's flip around to the other side of the room. Goodness it a hodge podge of hot mess mixed with ugliness. That's ok though, these types of rooms make great reveals for the afters, right?
I did move the dresser into the room though, I will most likely paint it a different color.
- Additional shelving for two bookcases (4 shelves)
- Add doors to bookcases
- Add knobs to bookcase doors
- New desk... possibly build it
- New filing cabinet
- Repaint dresser
- New curtains, lighter color
- Organize paperwork
- Organize office supplies
- Organize craft supplies
- Decorate "exposed" bookcase shelves
- Better lighting for the room (There is no overhead lighting)
- Extra seating... maybe slipper chair
Better get to work, till next time...
